THE PROJECT started with the aim to preserve traditional typography in the digital era. Our designs are focused on the study of the letterform and are realized with different styles and techniques. Inspired by antique books, calligraphy, graffiti and comics, we draw and print letters taking care of the project in the smallest details. Every job is handmade; but there is the possibility to digitalize it so it can be used in the new media. We create customized lettering for book covers, advertising, corporate identities, brands, videos, etc. We help you choosing the most suitable font to be used for your project. We offer workshops about printing, typographic design, engraving and calligraphy.
